When shortcake took the biscuit

The Times, Britain

By Michael Horsnell

They were described as a shortcake biscuit fully “enrobed in milk chocolate” and mouthwateringly extra long. But magistrates decided that the Cadbury Giant Fingers were ... well, too short. The tin was 167mm long but the biscuits were only 116mm long and the confectionery contravened the Trade Description Act. Burton’s Foods, the maker, was fined £5,000 at Cambridge after a supermarket customer complained.
